The Stan­dard Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity En­hance­ment So­ci­ety is spear­head­ing an in­ter­est­ing fundraiser in sup­port of the Mem­ory Lane walk­ing/cy­cling path pro­ject. An area res­i­dent has come for­ward and of­fered to rent 160 acres of farm­land for one dol­lar per acre to the group. The land could be rented for 1 year. The Mem­ory Lane group would be re­spon­si­ble for crop­ping the land for the up­com­ing year (2016). All prof­its rec­og­nized would go to­ward build­ing the mem­ory lane walk­ing path. The group would like to make this a com­mu­nity fundraiser by get­ting res­i­dents/busi­nesses to help cover in­put of costs, seed, fer­til­izer, chem­i­cal, fuel, etc. Also the group would like to ask area farm­ers to con­sider of­fer­ing to help seed, spray, and har­vest the crop. Any­one who would like to help out can con­tact one of the so­ci­ety di­rec­tors. For those who would like to make do­na­tions to the pro­ject, they can do so by mak­ing cheques payable to the Vil­lage of Stan­dard, and writ­ing “Mem­ory Lane” in the memo line. This way, tax de­ductible re­ceipts will be is­sued. Do­na­tions can also be made to a spe­cial “Mem­ory Lane” ac­count that has been set up at CHS in Stan­dard. So­ci­ety di­rec­tors are Don Sundgaard, Jackie Jensen, Ron Cor­biell, Moe Zaleschuk, Alan Larsen and Louise We­len. Watch for the fly­ers com­ing out soon in your mail­boxes.

Friends of East Wheat­land are look­ing for farm­ers! We have the seed and we have some chem­i­cal but we need farm­ers to plant 10 acres of canola for the new school. The farmer will get a tax re­ceipt for the dif­fer­ence of their do­nated rev­enue and the in­puts re­ceived from FEW. Con­tact Ce­leste Chris­tensen (403)6442212 or Jead­ene Gre­gory (403)787-2553 for more in­for­ma­tion or to sign up.

Nazareth Lutheran Church in­vites you to come to its Shrove Tues­day Pan­cake Sup­per. Fe­bru­ary 9 from 5-7 at the hall.

The draw will be made at the end of the evening. Fe­bru­ary 10 is Ash Wed­nes­day and all are in­vited to ser­vice at 7:00 pm at Nazareth. There is a Lovers Lunch Potluck on Fe­bru­ary 14 fol­low­ing wor­ship to cel­e­brate all cou­ples.
